This means that the clone of the repositopry has been created but
that no branch was checked out (because HEAD does not point
anywhere useful).

So after the clone, you just do

$ cd ws-metze-gsspai
$ git checkout -b ws-metze-gsspai origin/ws-metze-gsspai

and then you should have a working directory.

Hi Michael,

I followed your instructions and it worked like a charm. Thanks a lot.
